Rental Home
The former Gardener's Bothy of the Carnell Estates has been fully restored as a comfortable one bedroom cottage for two. The cottage sits quietly on the outer age of the historic Walled Garden with a small grassed area to the front with chairs and a BBQ. There is also ample parking. There is a cosy sitting room, kitchen with dining area, bedroom and bathroom. The house is lovingly furnished with a mixture of antiques, contemporary art and collectables. A housekeeping service is available on request for a small supplement. The cottage is dog friendly and we charge a supplement of £20 per visit per dog (max 2) which includes basket, bowls and extra cleaning. There is a washer/dryer and the house is hopefully kitted out for most things you'll need during your stay.

There is a washer/dryer and the house is hopefully kitted out for most things you'll need during your stay. Tesco and Waitrose both deliver to the Estate for online pre-orders. The Bothy is within 2000 acres of private Estate. We live in the main house which is approximately 500m from the Bothy. The Herbaceous Gardens are available for your discovery. At the main house we have a tennis court and a stocked large pond that we swim and fish. These may be available depending on who's staying in the house (please ask before booking if these are important parts of your visit). Whilst being in a very quiet and charming location, the Bothy is also a short drive from numerous top golf courses and perfect for golfers wishing to enjoy a choice of links and parkland golf. Notably, Dundonald is about 15 minutes and home to both the Scottish Open and the Ladies Open, Royal Troon, Western Gailes, Prestwick and Trump Turnberry are also easy drives. We are 15 minutes drive from the coast at Troon. It's also easy to take a day trip by ferry to the Isle of Arran (Scotland in miniature) taking in Arran Distillery. We are only just over 30 minutes drive from Glasgow Airport. Edinburgh is approximately 90 minutes drive and an easy day-trip. More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, little cottage. The Bothy has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. The tranquil surroundings are doggy heaven and we all enjoyed exploring the beautiful area of Ayrshire.

A beautiful cottage, full of thoughtful touches. It is adjacent to a stunning walled garden, which we had access to. Hosts could not have been more helpful and friendly and we had a wonderful experience. We would love to go back again.More

The Wee Bothy cottage exceeded our expectations. It was cosy and comfortable and a great secluded location in the Carnell Estate. It is even better than the photos on trip advisor. We have stayed in many cottage rentals, and this was by far the most...More
